The D5180HD Large Venue Projector from Vivitek is ideal for office, educational or home theater use. The HD in the name stands for full HD resolution. The 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution not only supports 1080p content but is a perfect match for today's widescreen laptops, whether they are Mac or PC.
No matter how you use it the D5180HD packs 4200 lumens of brightness backed with a 2000:1 contrast ratio that displays crisp details even in rooms or installations with high ambient light levels.
The D5180HD uses the latest in DLP technology from Texas Instruments called BrilliantColor. Unlike other technologies such as LCD that use just three primary colors to produce the image, DLP technology with BrilliantColor uses up to six separate colors. BrilliantColor not only improves color accuracy, it brightens secondary colors as well.
The D5180HD has an international auto switching 100 to 240V 50/60Hz power supply. It projects video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM international video standards and has a multi-language OSD to facilitate operation.
Vivitek has built-in connectivity including HDMI, component video, composite video and S-video. An RJ-45 connector allows control of the projector over a network as well as scheduling maintenance bulletins via email. At only 33dB in economy mode, the D5180HD will not compete with your movie or presentation. As with all DLPs, you'll never have to change a filter either.
Lastly, to make sure that your D5180HD doesn't take unauthorized leave of the premises, security is provided by a Kensington Lock slot and security bar.
